Many of us make time for various relationships in our lives. We put forth the time, social activity, and the late night communications. We even check in on various people in our circles from day to day. Could this be because we can physically see and hear these individuals? Some of us spend hours on social media stalking relationships that don’t even add any productivity to our lives. Why not stalk God his word, his music, his attitude. Clearly the world has time between snapchat, Facebook, twitter, Instagram and any other social media outlet.
Our relationship with God is like any other relationship requirement if not more. Time & effort is required to maintain a good healthy relationship. We are secured by God’s grace and his promises and yet the only requirement relationally is that we draw closer to God. That we allow the ability to enhance and evolve our relationship to another level. We tend to treat God like that fair weather friend or access as needed. Relationships require work and a development of selflessness. You might actually think you are closer to God but the physical beings that you can see and hear on a day to day basis… Quite possibly are distracting you from the first relationship priority of the day. If you are not married and/or single then truly enough you have even more time to go higher in God. If you are married never forget who is the head of your life. It takes 30 days to make and break habits.
Let’s develop a closer habit to God. Some profess and even pray but still not remotely close as we all need to be. Let’s start today to truly make God the leader of our lives. People say they live for God but are unwilling to truly sacrifice. What have you given up for God to exemplify Christ in your life today? Can you imagine the changes you could see in your life in 30, 60, and 90 or even a year from now by simply drawing closer but more importantly don’t forget the passion. #Got God?
James 4:8New King James Version (NKJV)
8 Draw near to God and He will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners; and purify your hearts, you double-minded.
